Tracking of blood pressure in adolescent boys is investigated using a mathematical model that corresponds to progression along a constant percentile. A more general analysis, based on the method of principal components, is also proposed that determines various alternative tracks or patterns that are most prevalent in the longitudinal blood pressure data. The degree of tracking along a constant percentile curve for systolic pressure was moderately high, as evidenced by a tracking index of .78… CONTINUE READING
